3 / Three - The WiFi ad - (2013)

Three / 3 wanted to promote their pocket wi-fi, so they used wi-fi networks to spread their message - very simple first idea. They then put together this far-too-long case study, complete with cheesy music and a voice-over lady with a thick Swedish accent, adding to the impression that this is student work. "We used an unexpected media-channel", except that it's totally expected by now. We've seen Wi-fi used as ad space several times before and badlanded it twice. Wifi has been used to shill everything from magazines to cars, this might be the first time the medium is actually the message: "get pocket-Wifi".

Stockholm City Mission "You'll never wear that again" (2013) 2:30 (Sweden)

fashion goes out of style. And yet you still have all that stuff in your closet. Why not donate it to those in need?

DDB Stockholm created this digital initiative for Stockholm City Mission called You'll never wear that again which sounds like a follow up to You didn't build that.

Basically the app uses your old Facebook photos to determine what you(or your freinds) no longer wear and then you go from there. Like the idea a lot. But I don't like adding apps to my Facebook page, so I'm posting the case study in stead.

Nice job, dudes.

Buy milk & give milk - Porteur bikes give one away for each one you buy

field print

Our pal Martin Cedergren tells us about his latest project;

"Porteur is a new bicycle brand inspired by the bicycles used in the past by messengers and milkmen. With a front mounted carrier it’s perfect for contemporary city life. And it comes with a unique promise - for every bicycle sold, one bicycle is donated to youths in developing countries. One for one, the promise is carried forward.

To make people aware of this promise, we have created a new campaign called: Buy milk – Give milk.

On Thursday this week, ambassadors of the brand, will use Porteur bikes to deliver milk to offices in downtown Stockholm. One litre costs 98 Swedish crowns. All money is then donated to buy therapeutic milk for children in need via UNICEF - One for one.
